When N&W Ruled in Bellevue

December 31, 2020

Norfolk & Western Alco RS36 No. 2865 is paired with an Alco-repowered FM Train Master as hump power in Bellevue on May 28, 1973. As far as I know, I never took the two together in one photo. The 2865 was built for the Nickel Plate Road in February 1962 as No. 865.

Rare Sighting

Delaware & Hudson RS-36 No. 5020 leads a quartet of four axle Alco locomotives eastbound past the Erie Lackawanna passenger station in Akron in the late 1960s. I have been told this is a rare photo because the D&H usually only used six axle ALCO’s on the EL.
